“Passage” April Book: gods at war by Kyle Idleman – On Sale at the Chapel Store for $10.00. Click on link to hear from author.
In gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of Not a Fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else. Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the discouragement you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.
According to Idleman, idolotry isn’t an issue – it is the issue.
By asking insightful question, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success, and many others that keep us fromthe intimate relationship with God that we desire.
Using powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, gods at war illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our twenty-first century idolatry back to the heart of God – enababling us to truly be completely committted followers of Jesus.
This book will challenge even the most obedient Christians to re-look at their relationship with Christ.
